The little things I hate about Microsoft

I was at zone.com and I got this error:
Important Note: Your browser or operating system does not meet the minimum requirements to play on MSN Games. You may be able to download games for offline play; however, the online games can be played only with Internet Explorer version 6 or later, and Windows 2000 or later.
I got this error because I’m running Firefox. I’ve acquired similar errors before, I was going to do the online chat support with dell and I couldn’t use it with Mozilla Firefox at all. I’ve had problems with MSDN also. I just think that for some people who don’t have IE at all Microsoft should bake their websites compatible with browsers like Firefox. I have never had a problem visiting an Apple page, a Mozilla page or any other page besides a Microsoft page using another browser that’s not their own. Microsoft can improve on a lot of things. That’s one of them. I do use their email service, (sign up for the free Microsoft social Network (MSN) hotmail service Here And it’s pretty good, I like Yahoo! mail Betta better though.

I use a flash drive (I usually refer to a flash drive as a zip drive) a lot in lego, (see my page Video and voice calls over the internet) When lego was over I tried taking it out and it wouldn’t let me take it out. If there is any problem it should say “Some applications are still using some of the data on this drive. If you click “OK” and proceed some applications will be terminated. If you choose to proceed click “OK” If you want to keep working click “Cancel”” that’s what it should tell me. Not “Cannot remove drive. Try again later.” Come on. At least tell me what’s using some of the data on it.

Another thing. I was going to get Office Live Basic and I got this error:

Microsoft Office Live    


To use Microsoft Office Live, your computer must meet one of the following requirements:

Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 or later, running on Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows Server 2003. You can download the latest version of Internet Explorer from the Windows Internet Explorer page

I later got it to work without IE and now have a website there. WordPress is still better though. The URL (Pronounced U-R-L) is way to long though.

I have been getting update after update after update from Microsoft Automatic Updates. This is usually okay but not now. That’s because I’ve been getting the same ones over and over and over again. And then on top of that they’re for the version of Microsoft Office I DON’T have! It keeps saying, ” Security Update for Excel 2002″ and “Security Update for Word 2002”. I have Microsoft Office 2007! then, on top of both of those, when I say “Don’t notify me about these updates again” they just keep coming back!
